Cuban American Bar Association Condemns Racially Charged Video Game (thanks Chris Johnson and Gamasutra (registration required)) has word of the latest unhappy reaction to Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, as the Cuban American Bar Association (CABA) has sent a letter "to the manufacturers of the video game... condemning the game's use of racially charged remarks promoting the hate and killing of Haitians and Cubans," demanding an apology to each group. They copy U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft and Florida Governor Jeb Bush , as they are also "seeking the removal of the offensive video game from store shelves throughout the country." Finally: "CABA's letter quotes the Haitian government spokesperson, Mr. Mario Dupuy, who stated, 'this racist game is psychologically extremely dangerous and is an incitement to genocide.'"
